What needs to be done to change out the rear coil springs on a 1998 Toyota Sienna. Are there any bolts or do I just use a decompression tool then jack the vehicle up.

    You can use a spring compressor if you support the rear axle with a jack and remove the shock you should be able to lower the axle far enough to just pull the spring out.

    Do one side at a time it will make lowering/raising the axle easier.

    Can I just compress the springs then raise the vehicle without lowering the axle.
